During our summer off we had several fun activities. We had the picnic at my house
with about 20 in attendance. Everyone brought a covered dish and we had barbecued pork. The food was really yummy, and everyone had a good time.
We had a new event with beer tasting at Carson’s Brewery. I was late getting there but didn’t make it before it was over. Most people had already left except for diehards (LOL!). It went over so well we will probably have another one next year.
We’ve had two meetings since we’ve been back from summer break. Our October Stated Session was held during the week of the West Side Nut Club Fall Festival, and attendance was low at the session. I want to thank my pro‐tem officers and the sideliners who were there. Most members were out because of working at the Fall Festival for their unit booths.
I’m sorry I missed the annual Fall Card Party. My grandson in Colorado was to have surgery. Two days before the surgery they canceled it because he was sick with ear, nose, and throat problems and was running a temperature. I hope everyone had a good time!
At our November Stated Session, we will be honoring Founders Day and learning about
the history of our order. I hope all will be able to attend. We will also be having our next ceremonial on November 18. I hope to see you there to welcome our new Princesses.
The holidays are quickly approaching also. Our annual Nile Christmas Party will be held
immediately following the Stated Session on Monday, December 2. Thank you to the Patrol for hosting this year’s party. I’m sure it will be lovely.
Nile Love and Sparkle On,
Cheryl Stader, Queen
